We are committed to working with our residents, businesses and partners to make sure that Warrington is accessible, welcoming and provides opportunities for everybody. This strategy sets out how we will achieve this vision through the delivery of our equality objectives and priorities 2020-2024. These are an integral part of the organisation and link closely with our Corporate Strategy. They guide the work we carry out and show our commitment to challenging inequality and promoting a fair and inclusive town. They also demonstrate our commitment to the Public Sector Equality Duty contained within the Equality Act 2010.
The strategy was revised in September 2020 to help guide the town’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. It contains priorities and actions to help mitigate some of the health and economic impacts of the pandemic on those most affected.
Our Strategic Equality Group is responsible for the delivery of the objectives and priorities. The strategy will be reviewed on an annual basis. Regular progress reports will be forwarded to Cabinet. In addition, some of the projects will be monitored through our performance management framework.
